WS 97
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2007
Wonderfully perfumed with rose blackberry and a hint of wet earth. Full-bodied with layers of silky tannins and a long long finish. Structured. Hard not to drink now but will be even better with a little more bottle age... Wonderfully perfumed with rose blackberry and a hint of wet earth.

Fuligni

Fuligni is a family-owned estate on the eastern side of Montalcino. The vines, which extend over ten hectares, are primarily located at Cottimelli with altitudes varying from 1,250 to 1,500 feet. Average age of the vines is about twelve years with some dating back more than thirty years. The estate’s four vineyards are planted with Sangiovese, complemented by a small portion of Merlot.

The Fuligni range consists of the regular Brunello, a Brunello Riserva, a Rosso (Ginestreto), and an IGT Toscana made from a blend of Sangiovese and Merlot.
